My dear Grosvenor
This is ugly weather for locomotion, – but Jove cœterisque xxxxx xxxx faventibus  we shall be glad to see you tomorrow at your own time & Henry with you if he can come. I am sorry to say there is no bed to offer you here, Mrs Hill expecting two sisters  tomorrow who have already by anticipation turned me out of mine. But there are good beds at the White Lion hard by.
